. and the problem is, in this environment, there are so many 24-hour news cycles like cnn, like espn. there are so many investigative reporters. there's the internet blogs, everyone in the world focuses and until you put an end to a story like that, whether it's manti te'o or lance armstrong, it continues to build and build and build and the damage was done because the name keeps getting repeated in the most negative way. >> that's exactly what i want to get to, the damage. because with regard to manti te'o, everyone has said that this guy is remarkable and he had extraordinary prospects for the draft. has this done any damage to his draft stock? >> basically what the nfl cares about is the projection of how the player will play on the field over the next 10 to 11 years. players have done much worst things that even if this turns out to be a te'o hoax, they have done worst things and have gotten drafted. the problem is, if it's a big, big character red flag, teams put down guaranteed signing bonuses and cannot lose cap money. it's a disaster if a rookie turns out to be someone that gets disqualifi
